There is a little known fact that the San Elizario High School (SEHS) Graphic Design Program is actually a fully functioning Print Shop.
Under the leadership of Mrs. Sylvia Ruvalcaba, Program Instructor, and Mrs. Elizabeth Ornelas, Print Shop Manager, the SEHS program is organized and run as a print shop that processes various orders and offers services such as graphic design, printing, copying, specialty orders, etc.
Recently, Mrs. Ornelas was informed of a request for bid being sent out by the Culinary Club at Dona Ana Community College in New Mexico.
Upon submission of a quote for services along with samples to demonstrate product quality, the San Elizario High School Print Shop was awarded the contract to develop the graphic/logo to be used on printed materials for the 2019-2020 school year.
This contract was an open bid application and SEHS beat out various print shops in the New Mexico area, as well as the graphic design program at one of the Las Cruces high schools.
“The contract was awarded to our SEHS program due to the quality of samples presented as well as our design and print options that allowed our program to develop and produce a program banner for the Chop IT Culinary Club as well as design and produce the requested t-shirt and polo shirts,” SEHS officials shared.
The print shop’s customer base is made up of various clubs, departments, and programs at the high school and other campuses as well as the SEISD central office.
Additionally, the print shop also provides service to the community of San Elizario and partnering school districts as well as private industry partners both within and external to the state of Texas.
